13 - EMZ-5 Body

Meiji Techno EMT & EMZ Body Range
Few manufacturers of stereo microscopes can match Meiji’s combination of superb optics, rugged dependability, economical pricing and wide range of accessories offered by Meiji Techno’s EM Series Stereo Microscopes.

Turret stereo bodies (EMT) have two objective pairs in a turret mount that allows the viewer to change from one magnification to another (e.g. from 10x to 30x) by rotating the turret. While not as flexible as a zoom stereo (EMZ) body, turret bodies are more economical.
The EMT series offers 4 different magnification combinations in both binocular and trinocular models, as well as a specialized extended working distance turret body (EMX-1) designed for users who need extra room to work with their hands under the microscope.

Zoom stereo microscope bodies (EMZ) are the most flexible because they offer a wider range of magnification than turret (EMT) or fixed bodies. Zoom objectives increase and decrease magnification progressively, causing the specimen to grow or shrink smoothly in the eyes of the viewer holding their parafocality or focus throughout the zoom range.
Meiji Techno offers EM Series zoom stereo microscope bodies with a wide range of magnifications and working distances.
